Continuing the discussion from Stonehearth memes?:
After reading through the Stonehearth meme’s thread I’ve been inspired by a vision of the future.
This future includes a fully released version of Stonehearth, with a custom mod installed - the Star Trek TNG: Crash Landing Mod.
Behold the details of my vision:
The Mod’s Story:
[Whichever TNG Bridge Crew Members you chose] were on a shuttlecraft, scanning a subspace anomaly giving off strange temporal particles.
A dimensional vortex was activated by their scans and they found themselves crash landing on a strange voxel world.
With no hope of rescue, the shuttle passengers begin to make a new life for themselves here on planet “StoneHearth”. They build a village for themselves and begin to meet some of the natives…
Special Class Trees from this Mod:
Diplomat Class Tree: You would have access to this class if you chose to bring a diplomatic character on your shuttlecraft - like Jean-Luc Picard.
This class would have an increased skill of first contact with new races. A highly leveled up Diplomat would even be able to make peace with warlike cultures such as goblins, or negotiate peace treaties between warring nations.
Scientist/Medical Class Tree: You would have access to this class if you brought a scientist with you, like Beverly Crusher.
This class would be able to do research to begin adapting federation technology tnto the voxel world help with sciencey (greenhouses/farms maybe?) and medical stuff.
Engineer Class Tree: You would have access to this class if you brought an engineer with you, like Geordi Laforge.
This class would be able to research and adapt federation technology into the voxel world for practical applications, like weapons or tools.
Security Class Tree: You would have access to this class if you brought a security officer with you, like Worf, son of Mogh.
This class would be the front line defenders as your colony started out.
Anyways guys - what do you think?
Wicked idea for a mod right? I’m hoping a few of you out there are as much of a nerd as I am.
While I lack anything but rudimentary programming skills, I’m willing to contribute to a mod like this by organizing people to help with it - I’d consider it a community project and would rely on you guys to contribute your ideas!
Just so you know - if you’re a mod maker or programmer and you’re willing to spend the time programming this thing to happen, the project would be fully credited to you.
Which means this thread ends with two requests:
1. if you have the knowledge or tools to help make this mod happen in the future, make plans to help when the beta is released!
2. If you have any voxel art to share or ideas on how to make this concept better (different classes or other ideas) post them here!
What do you think @Froggy ? Your voxel art inspired this entire post. If you’re willing to contribute your awesome art to this project or a project like this then I will probably wet myself with excitement. (also if this is something that you were already planning to do with your voxel art then I will bow out and let you take the lead on it!)
